They transformed the property and buildings into a striking home (above) and gallery (below). It has been referred to as "contemporary organic" and even "modern baroque."
Located five miles outside of San Miguel de Allende, their gallery and home sits on eight acres among beautiful, old mesquite trees and lush landscaping.
Yesterday morning, my group and I traveled to the countryside to tour two homes. Both have outstanding art collections and Shacter's property is one of my all time favorite stops.The gallery houses one of the best folk art collections around. Their home also displays their amazing, personal folk art along with a few other pieces for purchase.
Mayer has one of the finest private collections of old serapes from the "post-classic" period dating from 1875 to 1940. They are available to view (and purchase) upon request.
